Herreshoff 12.5
Naval architect Captain Nathanael Greene Herreshoff and his Herreshoff Manufacturing Company were in the business of producing the world's finest yachts from 1863 to 1945. He designed the 12 and a half footer in 1914 for yachtsmen who wanted a training sailboat for their children that would handle the strong wind and steep chop of Buzzards Bay. He built what he called the "Buzzard' s Bay Boy's Boat" in his shop in Bristol Bay, Rhode Island until 1939
